Ginger Lemongrass Rosé Cocktail


Ginger Lemongrass Rosé Cocktail

I had to post one more Rosé cocktail recipe before summer comes to a close.  I'm going to consider this Ginger Lemongrass Rosé Cocktail to be a "Fall Transitional" cocktail.  The soft pink hue along with the floral and citrus notes certainly is reminiscent of summer but the ginger gives the drink just the right amount of warmth and spice.

Ginger is definitely one of my favorite flavors in a cocktail.  You can find some of my other favorite ginger cocktail recipes in this post, this post, this post, this post, this post and this post! It's definitely safe to say I like the little bit of zing it adds to a beverage!

I absolutely love garnishing with edible flowers and find it's an extremely easy way to elevate the appearance of a drink.  I found the lemongrass and edible flowers for this cocktail at Whole Foods.

And I'm OBSESSED with these new champagne glasses!  They would make a beautiful addition to any bar cart and they're very affordable!

These cocktails are so pretty and would be lovely for a brunch, bridal shower or (in my case) Thursday night in after the baby goes to bed!  I like to post cocktail recipes that are simple to make and this one is no exception.   My cocktails have to be pretty quick and simple nowadays since Bennett is constantly on the move and is the Usain Bolt of crawling.

I hope you guys have some fun plans for the weekend!  I'm really excited about meeting up with some fellow UGA alums to watch the game Saturday night!  Cheers! Clink! And Go Dawgs!!
